Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies made with peanut butter, flourless oatmeal cookies, packed full of walnuts & chocolate chips & filled with marshmallow cream. YUM!
It’s time for peanut butter bash! Who here is as excited as I am?? I love getting creative with peanut butter, because – well, it’s OH SO GOOD! Right??! This month the pairing is peanut butter & cinnamon- so my mind immediately went to peanut butter oatmeal cookies. But I have been wanting to make oatmeal cream pies for a really long time. Oatmeal cookies are the hubs all-time favorite & I have been promising him that I would make some for a while. But I’m not so hot on them usually & need something to jazz them up. So I decided that Oatmeal Cream Pie Cookies would be absolutely perfect.

Now if the hubs had his way these would be straight oatmeal raisin cookies. I rarely do raisins so I often compromise with him & add chocolate chips. I did that here with these – it’s completely optional. You can make these like a traditional oatmeal cream pie too & leave out all the mix-ins. Since I was already adding peanut butter & removing the flour I thought they might need a little extra somethin’-somethin’. You know what – I’m glad I did. That added chocolate & the crunch of the walnuts was a great pairing to go with that awesome marshmallow cream filling. I could eat that stuff by itself – all day long. Honestly – these are truly incredible! I ate way more than I should have & you know, I just refuse to feel guilty about it.
Just look at all that delicious cream filling- oh my, oh my!
Those chocolate chips & walnuts were great.
You could also use pecans & white chocolate chips. YUM!
The kids tried to tell me that if they ate them for breakfast it could be considered healthy since they were made with oatmeal & they are flourless. Where on earth did they learn this logic? Oh- right, that was me 🙂 !
